I wouldn't have a career if it weren't for this job!
Full Service Technician (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – July 8, 2016
This was my 2nd job out of college and was a big career change for me. I had to provide my own tools, get professional certifications to do the job, had to work out doors in dirty conditions in 100+ degree weather year round. I really liked my coworkers and we had a lot of fun doing this job. If things stressed me out, I could find relaxation in the basic day to day activities of this job. Management was sloppy, I worked for this company for free for 2 months before I was hired and got my first paycheck because management didn't process any of the forms needed to hire me. Management also liked to move employees from store to store within a 25 mile radius of where we first applied, which at times meant I reported to stores in different counties than the one I lived in. The pay was extremely low, when I started it was $6/hour + up to $2 in hourly commission depending on activity. When I left I was making $8/hour with up to 18% commission depending on the activity I was doing. The pay was so low at times it was impossible to pay rent alone, which was a shame because I loved this job. My bosses were big promoters of me and really pushed me to do my best all the time and rewarded me with praise when I did. The hardest part of this job was not dying in the heat out doors during the summer, because Texas is too hot.
friendly coworkers, friendly bosses, fun day to day activities
pay was too low, management was sloppy
